    I realize it is only 8 games, but...

    .290/.353/.710

    ...that is Hamilton's triple-slash for the month of July.

    If you take it back to when he took two games off at the end of June, from June 23rd to July 10th his triple-slash is .346/.426/.654.

    He also has more walks in that time period (7 in 15 games) than he did from May 23rd to June 20th (6 in 25 games).


    It's definitely not a guarantee, but he may be turning this season around.

    Yikes both Williams and Blanton pitching this series, that Weav/King Felix match up should be good. Adding too those Hamilton numbers in the past 7 games he and Albert are combined .342avg 5hrs 15rbis

    Speaking of players stepping it up

    C.J. Wilson IP 52 ERA 2.60 K/9 8.0 BB/9 2.6 WHIP 1.15

    Its not luck either his BABIP in those 8 starts .286, his career BABIP .287. Across those 8 starts he is also averaging 6.5IP per game. He has also almost matched his WAR total from last season in 15 less starts (2012 2.2 2013 2.1).

    It's pretty much but Blanton has had like 5 horrible starts versus about 13 good ones.

    IP 24 H/9 18.4 ERA 10.88 K/9 8.3 BB/9 3.0
    IP 84 H/9 10.1 ERA 3.86 K/9 7.4 BB/9 1.5

    These 5 starts came against A's (4/10), Royals (5/13), White Sox (5/18), Red Sox (6/9), and Cubs (7/9). So 2 good teams and 3 bad teams.

    Over his last 9 starts (including two of those horrible games)

    IP 58 H/9 8.8 ERA 4.34 K/9 8.7 BB/9 1.4 WHIP 1.14


    So I guess about 75% of the time you can expect him to keep us in the game and 25% of the time you can expect him to blow it for us.

    Just for fun lets compare Williams over his last 56 IP to Blanton

    IP 58 H/9 8.8 ERA 4.34 K/9 8.7 BB/9 1.4 WHIP 1.14 (Blanton)
    IP 56 H/9 9.8 ERA 4.79 K/9 5.8 BB/9 2.9 WHIP 1.41 (Williams)

    Without that one start against the Cards (IP 1.2 ER 7) Jerome's ERA drops almost a full run down to 3.83

    @SamMillerBP: Manny Machado is on pace to break Ripken's record late September 2028, when he'll be 36

    That's crazy to just think about, how long Ripken played for. I would be 35

    Aybar stats as lead off .258avg 1hr 16rbis 1sb 4bb .625ops in 151 abs
    Hitting everywhere in the order .325avg 2hr 18rbis 3sb 4bb .742ops in 120 abs

    Aybar is not a leadoff hitter, he doesn't have patience at the plate or a very good base stealer he is at best near the bottom of the order where he can move runners on base with his ability to bunt well and hit for contact. With that being said it won't surprise me he goes 2-4 tonight with 2 runs score and i look foolish with this post lol.

    It's kind of fascinating at this point watching the way he's turned into a scapegoat, no matter what happens. On June 3rd, he had 8IP, gave up 3 hits, 2 ER, 11K, 0BB... and we lost 2-1. But people see that he pitched, and we lost, and that's where they stop. There was the article someone posted about him being one of the worst starters in franchise history, and it talked about his run support being right around average... but didn't mention that in 8 of his starts this season, the Angels have scored 2 or fewer runs. Almost no AL starter is going to win with run support like that.
